As one would expect, every older woman in a relationship with a younger man will have her own very personal reasons but, having undertaken a survey of our members, here is a summary of the top 5 reasons why older women dating younger men:
#1 younger men tend to be more physically appealing, often with well toned bodies, given the modern trends relating to keeping fit and taking care with grooming, skin care and the like; invariably, the younger man in such relationships with older women will be handsome and well presented
#2 older women find that dating a younger man who is up to date with current trends in fashion, modern technology and communications and so on, can also help them connect to the modern world—thereby allowing the older woman to rediscover her own youth
#3 younger men dating older women are likely to have more of a tendency to try to please; that is, when the spark has gone from a “same-age” relationship and an older woman finds a younger man who is prepared to do that little bit extra for her, be chivalrous and attentive, then the older women will, herself, begin to feel that she is “special”—and what women doesn’t appreciate being coveted?
#4 an older woman and a younger man may find that they have shared common interests, perhaps in enjoying sports such as tennis or ski-ing or other activities such as painting or amateur dramatics. It’s not unusual for a friendship between a younger man and older woman to develop into a more serious relationship once both parties find that they have more and more things in common
#5 for a cougar dating a younger men, there is a sense of validation that she is still attractive enough and enable to attract her young “cougar”. If the older woman has been able and willing to retain her good looks and figure owing to a combination of diet and exercise, then there are many younger men out there who will value her relative maturity and worldly experience, rather than be with a younger women who may still be quite immature
Until relatively recently, it’s fair to say that relationships between older women and younger men have sometimes been questioned but, with overall attitudes in society continuing to soften, it’s becoming more common to see more of these types of age-gap relationships.
